From Leo: “I have a love for the mystical things in nature. Have you ever watched a dragonfly? I mean really watched them? They glow with colors that illuminate them like a little beam of light. I love watching them hover near me in the pasture. They are so delicate yet so strong. They are sure of flight and don’t have any need for a specific flight plan. They just fly where life takes them. One minute they are here and the next they are gone. I don’t know how they do that, but I think it may be a bit of magic. I find the same joy in butterflies. My donkey body can be a bit clunky and heavy, but they just fly as if they are filled only with light, and I think that they are. Magic and wonder is all around us. And the more you embrace that, the more magic you will see. I think that is the secret to life. Don’t overlook the small things. Sometimes it is the small things that hold the greatest answers to your deepest questions in life. At least that is how it is for me. I’m just one little donkey (but don’t let my size fool you!), but I can live a big life by observing all the little things and taking it all in. So can you.”
Each day through December 31, as has been our annual tradition now for many years, we will share with you a message from one of the animals of Spring Farm CARES. We hope this will provide you with a bit of inspiration for your day.
